Sportcast 2
Sara Sjölin

Sara Sjölin retells the story of her destructive and failed relationship with an ex-boyfriend in great detail in ‘Sportcast 2’. She combines her storytelling with commenting an old football match between arch-rivals Malmö FF and Helsingborgs IF, played out in its entirety. Absurdly funny, (self-)ironic and brutally honest. Sjölin’s deadpan diction introduces a performative dimension to the tale of her stormy relationship with Helmet, an ’emotional colonizer’, and how things later turned out. As the players run, score and fall in the pouring rain, she talks about Helmet and how contradictory it all was. About the child inside him, his anger, jealousy and lust. After the first half of the game, Malmö FF is in a commanding lead, and as the intensity of the game fades, Sara goes deeper into analytical storytelling, with more characters entering this perverted relationship drama.
